    Amanda from our Facebook community shared her favorite black bean burger recipe from Eat, Live, Run.

    Black Bean Burgers


    • 2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
    • 1 T ground flax + 3 T water
    • 1 jalapeno
    • 2 cloves garlic
    • 2 T tomato sauce
    • 1/2 cup Panko breadcrumbs
    • 2 tsp cumin
    • 1 1/4 tsp salt
    • 1/2 cup corn (fresh or frozen and defrosted)
    • avocado for topping
    • olive oil (or canola oil)  for frying burgers


    1. Seed and roughly chop jalapeno. Add it and the garlic cloves to a food processor (or high speed blender) and mince finely. (Alternatively, you could chop them yourselves very finely but it’s just easier at this point to throw them in a food processor.)
    2. Add one can of beans to the jalapeno/garlic mixture and pulse to combine. Add cumin and salt and pulse until mixture resembles chunky black bean dip.
    3. In a small bowl, mix together the ground flax and water. Let sit for five minutes.
    4. Transfer the mixture in the food processor to a large bowl and stir in the bread crumbs, tomato sauce, flax and corn. Stir well until everything is combined. Add remaining black beans.
    5. Heat a little olive oil in a skillet on medium high heat. Form black bean mixture into patties and fry for about 4 minutes per side, until golden and crusty brown.
    6. Serve burgers with avocado slices, sriracha and ketchup.
